Library and archives

We will continue to support you as you study, teach and research.  Please do not hesitate to get in touch if you need something! Library staff are on site weekdays to organise Click and Collect, book requests, scanning and postal services. 

We will respond to demand for services in line with Government, University and College guidance and so planned services may unfortunately need to change at short notice. 

When you arrive ensure that face masks are worn at all times whilst in the Library, unless a student is exempt. Library staff will ask students to leave if they fail to comply with this rule. Reminding students several times per day does not work and is causing stress. If students wish to notify us in confidence about an exemption then they can of course do so. Students who are persistent offenders will be reported to the Junior Censor to consider a sanction, if need be.
